The Villain Thievz were originally formed in August of 1999. DJ Striker and Poisen Ivy got together and collaborated on their hit debut song, "Roll with the Villains." DJ Boogey joined the group two days later as the producer and MIDI selection manager. Big Ben joined the group in December of 1999 and provided various ideas including his writing in "Get Ya Groove On." In the Summer of 2000 the website was deteriorating because the host site was taking down their songs. The site completely fell apart soon after. In May 2003 The Colonel convinced Poisen Ivy to bring the Villain Thievz site back. Poisen then made The Colonel the latest member of VTz after his song ideas for "Outspoken."
